    I say yes. They dominated the best offense in NFL history on the biggest stage possible. Manning looked like he was about to cry.

    No defense with six players suspended due to performance enhancing drugs gets that distinction in my book. Pete Carroll fosters cheating.


    Yeah, I know it's "only" Adderall and not a steroid, but I'm pretty certain it helped them.

    Seahawks beat Broncos by almost the same score in a pre-season game.

    I doubt the 63 Bears or 73 Dolphins, Knu's Purple People Eaters and some other great defenses had players taking performance enhancers. There are teams out there you can speculate about. But no speculation is needed for the Seahawks.

    I'm not saying the Seahawks don't have a great defense. But I choose to reserve 'greatest' for teams that were clean, mostly clean or at least weren't caught. I don't see anything wrong with that.
